    UK Politics The Brexit thread (or All -not- quiet on the western front)

    And parliament has stamped it's feet and demanded another extension. Imagine if the Greek legislature declared that it was going to suspend all debt payments because they thought they were "odious"

    Well, fuck. The turks have 50 nukes.

    Unless they can somehow bypass the PAL which is designed to prevent this very scenario, there's not much to gain.

    Nancy Pelosi announces impeachment inquiry into President Trump

    [Monkey's paw curls a finger] now you have a multiple competition setup just like Europe in June 1914. This time with nukes.

    Nancy Pelosi announces impeachment inquiry into President Trump

    By '92, the Democrats were in a rut. LBJ had discredited the progressive wing with Vietnam, Carter hammered the final nails in the New Deal's coffin and they lost two consecutive landslides to Reagan and then lost to Bush Snr. T'wasn't a pleasant time.

    Justin Trudeau caught Cosplaying as Mr. Popo

    This is the logical conclusion of the callout culture Justin trudeau had celebrated. Where you have to be absolutely pure and the perfect avatar of the underprivileged.

    Justin Trudeau caught Cosplaying as Mr. Popo

    It's more the hypocrisy of Trudeau. And "It was a different time!" doesn't hold water back then, since if Bush had been revealed to have done something similar in the 2000 election, he'd have lost.

    Justin Trudeau caught Cosplaying as Mr. Popo

    https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/trudeau-brownface-arabian-nights-1.5289165 There's "Young and dumb" and then there's acting like a /pol/ meme and then running as a liberal hoping that doesn't come back to bite you.

    French president overhears police officer ignoring domestic violence

    True. De Tocqueville would spin in his grave if he learned that a president was interfering with an administrative hearing in police misconduct.

    An Epidemic of disbelief Or as I call it no one ever gets to say rape culture isn't a thing again. Please Read the Article.

    Skyzeta explained in great detail on SB why Rape Kits are far from an I WIN button that progressives would like to believe.

    https://amp.theguardian.com/society/2019/sep/04/macron-hears-police-officer-refuse-to-help-woman-in-danger?__twitter_impression=true @Rufus Shinra just how screwed is this officer? IIRC cops have been fired for less. And ignoring your boss is a "you are fired. Do Not Pass Go. Do Not Collect 200."

    Polarisation is a Drug

    Okay where did that come from? I was responding to how "if it weren't for the evil evil Russian bots, we would be in star trek by now!" Is a common talking point that doesn't bear out in reality. As for "moral superiority" if a democracy is bought out by the rich to the point that Jeremy corbyn...

    Polarisation is a Drug

    Because as we all know, a few squatting slavs listening to hardbass and playing csgo in their spare time managed to warp reality to retroactively induce climate collapse, spiralling inequality, social atomization and endemic corruption upon a virgin world that had never known such evils. Or...

    Polarisation is a Drug

    UK Politics The Brexit thread (or All -not- quiet on the western front)
